The New Mexico Center for Law and Poverty met with the Albuquerque Journal
Editorial Board and provided information and materials on the importance of expanding Medicaid in the State. In part as a result of this effort, the Journal urged the Governor to expand Medicaid. In addition, NMCLP held trainings and presented to a Native American Coalition
on the benefits of Medicaid expansion. NMCLP also published an issue brief
advocating for Medicaid expansion and argues that this opportunity would provide coverage to over 170,000 uninsured New Mexicans.
